The Federation of Zavea is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Langley with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 18.951 billion Zaveans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oured. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Zavean economy, worth a remarkable 7,582 trillion Zavean Standard Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 400,133 Zavean Standard Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework, and government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zavea's national animal is the Angel Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zavea is ranked 41st in the world and 2nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Developed, scoring 100.47 on the Human Development Index.
